Ant-Man and the Wasp Opens Huge In China

Ant-Man and the Wasp Opens Huge In China

While the first film following The Avengers: Infinity War opened for most of us early last month, Ant-Man and the Wasp only just opened in China, and it opened big!

The film raked in $68 million to start in China, giving it the fourth best opening for an MCU film, and the third highest of the year in China for a Hollywood movie as well.

Adding in other international territories, the film actually brought in $71.2 million for the weekend, which is presently outperforming the first movie’s foreign gross by 35%.

The flick is also blowing by the first movie in China, as the sequel is 66% ahead; Ant-Man and the Wasp also sports the best IMAX opening with $7.2 million in China.

Currently, the Ant-Man and the Wasp worldwide box office stands at:

U.S.:       $211,470,699

Foreign: $332,600,00

Total:      $544,070,699 

Comparing the numbers to the first 2015 movie:

U.S.:       $180,202,163

Foreign: $339,109,802

Total:     $519,311,965 

Ant-Man and the Wasp also has an 87% Rotten Tomatoes score with 80% of the audience stating they liked it; the first movie finished with an 82% RT score and an 86% fan score.  

I felt Ant-Man 2 was a really good movie and a lot of fun. Plus, what goes down might have something to do with the Avengers 4 next May. 

While Marvel hasn’t officially announced a third movie in the franchise, there is at least talk about it
